HOOPERS ISLAND RESIDENCE BY DAVID JAMESON ARCHITECT

This 2,200 square-foot residence is located on a Chesapeake Bay barrier island near the Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge, an estuarine marshland ecosystem, and an important stop along the Atlantic Flyway. David Jameson Architect designed three structures to accomodate the clients needs of a guest cabin, master cabin, and lodge, utilizing materials and cabin placement to provide cohesion.  The Hoopers Island Residence has received numerous design awards including a 2009 National Housing Award.  Follow the break for more photographs and drawings of this vernacular inspired vacation home.

The project conceptually fuses architectonic form with the natural elements of the site. Positioned between a salt meadow marsh, a pine forest, and the bay, the architecture is conceived to be at one with the water, the horizon, and the sky. The idea of an elemental architecture is explored in the relationship between the simple form of the building and the agrarian structures that dot the surrounding area. Via @ArchDaily
